Come November 18 and we all would all see the thirteenth installment of NFS, by the name NFS undercover. You will be playing an undercover agent, who goes underground in Tri-City- the largest virtual city ever created by NFS Team, based on American west-coast cities. Tri-City will contain four distinct part known as Palm Harbor, Port Cresent, Gold Coast Mountains, and Sunset Hills. The gameplay is touted to be like the previous best seller Most Wanted. The map is shown below:-
As usual, sprint and circuit will be there in the gameplay. Bad news for drifting fans though, there is no drifting in this installment. There will also be the return of highway battles (though the name is new, it is all about driving in traffic and police behind your back). Specific missions will be there as well. As usual Cops and robber mode will be there as well. This mode has been named The Heist. This mode will be made for online gaming in which each team will have upto 8 players and robbers will try to get the packages to a destination and cops will try to thwart them. Online mode will also feature sprint, circuit, point-to-point, highway battles. You are undercover but you still have chases because you break every law to bring down criminals.
The police will be a lot tougher to beat this time. The Helicopter will make a comeback as a police vehicle. The AI (of police) will be able to use advanced precision immobilization techniques. They are called Tri-City Police Department, TCPD for short.
